Homeopathic Drainage Treatment. Part 2

But then Vannier also selected one, or two, drainage remedies which are principally aimed at the patient’s functional symptoms and which are used in medium potency (30C) once or twice a day.

If the patient also has lesional symptoms, a further, or the same, drainage remedy would be used in low potency (6C), daily or every second day, principally aimed at the patient’s lesional symptoms or signs, such as a skin rash. As emphasized above these selections are made on the basis of the Materia Medica.

The use of the high potency ‘fundamental remedy’ or simillimum, was only one part of what Vannier called ‘regulating treatment’, which he defined as follows:

“Regulating treatment is the combination of measures to be used to re-establish and maintain the equilibrium of an individual”. (Vannier 1950, p. 479)

The second part of ‘regulating treatment’ is the selection of the appropriate nosode, such as Psorinum, Medorrhinum, Tuberculinum etc,. according to the patient’s symptoms. This nosode is also used in high potency (Vannier 1950, p. 484), 200C or 1M, and used in alternation with the high potency ‘simillimum’ or ‘fundamental remedy’, about two weeks after the simillimum.

During a repertory analysis it will be found that only a few rubrics have nosodes among the listed remedies. So in the final list of remedies covered the nosodes will only occur with a low frequency, which is why they are often ignored in repertory analysis. However, if the frequency with which each of the principal nosodes occurs among the symptoms of a case is noted, one can calculate a frequency distribution for the principal nosodes.

In the symptoms of a particular hypothetical case (let us assume there are 15) the principal nosodes might for instance occur in the following frequencies:
Remedy No. %
Tuberculinum 6 40
Psorinum 6 40
Medorrhinum 2 13
Syphilinum 2 13
Totals 16 106
This total of 16 may seem strange given that the analysis was based on only 15 symptoms. But it must be remembered that the same symptoms can be covered by one or more nosodes.

The Standard Toxic Ratio

From this relative frequency with which the principal nosodes occurred among a patient’s symptoms, Vannier derived what he called the toxic ratio. (Vannier 1950, p. 421) In our hypothetical case the toxic ratio for the four principal nosodes, Tuberculinum, Psorinum, Medorrhinum, and Syphilinum, could be said to be (in percentages): 40%, 40%, 13%, 13%.

Since the total symptoms the nosodes cover may vary for different repertory analyses done on the same case from time to time it would be difficult to compare the Toxic Ratios obtained at different times. In order to obtain comparable percentages we use the standardized toxic ratio or briefly called: Standard Toxic Ratio (STR).
